The Beginning of Break Beat (Hip Hop) Music

By Baambaataa Assim (DJ Afrika Bambaataa)

Professor Afrika Bambaataa breaks down the origin of Break Music in his own inimitable style.  Tommy Boy must have produced these promo posters for the 'Greatest Beats' compilation release back in the late 90s.  Cab you imagine my horror then relief when I realised this was amongst a bunch of paper headed for the recycle bin?!  That ‘FAIL’ moment was averted!  It’s a little bit crumpled but I will frame it and hang it with pride!

It’s occurred to me that I may have to face up to a future FAIL moment!  I don’t know where I have put my Tommy Boy doormat! I’m not kidding Tommy Boy got domestic for a minute!  I really hope I still have it….

ps have you spotted Bam’s typo? :)

A DAY IN THE BRONX PT 1

(From Piece keepers to Peace Keepers)

Davy D is a dude!  He’s put together a good doc here.  I have the most time for this Hip Hop Scholar who makes it his business to document Hip Hop history.

This 4 part documentary is catching up with members of the Black Spades who were celebrating their 40th anniversary and reunite with members of the Ghetto Brothers and Popmaster Fabel vice president of the Rocksteady Crew who is also a Hip Hop historian himself.  Some great points are discussed, it’s fantastic watching these guys build.

NY 77: THE COOLEST YEAR IN HELL! PART 1

Son Of Sam, Blackout, Hip Hop, Punk, Disco, Drugs, Porn, Parties In The Park, Politricks…

This is an eye opening documentary giving us the low down on NYC in the hardcore days of 1977.  Yeah shit was rough, but those conditions bred a lot of creativity which in turn led to NYC’s rich culture inspiring the world!!!  No exaggeration!  Real talk!
